Lysa TerKeurst is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the New York Times bestselling author of Uninvited and The Best Yes. She writes from her sticky farm table and lives with her family in North Carolina. Connect with her at www.LysaTerKeurst.com.
Each day's devotion begins with a passage of Scripture and a "Thought for the Day," then proceeds to a two- or three-page vignette about TerKeurst's struggles with eating disorders and advice on how to move more and eat less, and then concludes with a daily prayer that seeks spiritual guidance and help in controlling hunger and weight gain. The devotions often contain lessons on nutrition, spiritual wisdom, personal health, self-respect, individual confrontation with reality, and goal setting.
Year after year, TerKeurst would make New Years resolutions to start exercising, stop snacking, and begin taking better care of her health; within a week or two she would find herself going to parties and indulging in treats and forgoing all her willpower. Finally, she realized that there were issues in her life that she needed to get right with the Lord before she could ever get things right in her physical and spiritual make-up. By exploring the Bible for specific help, devoting more time to prayer and fellowship with the Lord, and shaking free of emotional "baggage" she had been carrying, she finally found a way to control her eating and improve her health and appearance. She wrote a book about it and wound up on Oprah and other national TV shows.
However, TerKeurst feels that it is imperative for women to sustain their closeness to the Word of God in order to stay disciplined to their eating regiments. Thus, she has prepared a devotional that can be followed for a week, a month, or even 60 consecutive days to meet the "hard time" needs of women who may be tempted to slip back into the old eating habits. Fortunately, this book is written with humor, humility, and optimism, so it lays on no guilt trips nor delivers any lectures. It's just meant to face a real need, with real help, based on real Scriptures. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
